Jill White (1970-2018), pictured in the newly installed plaque above, served as the athletic trainer at Saint Albert for over twenty years. There was a raising of the paddle at the auction this past spring to raise money for the STEM program in memory of Jill. Over $60,000.00 was raised to enhance our programs in the area of science, technology, engineering, and math.
It was wonderful to share with people this evening all of the good news. We were able to purchase new laptops for the robotics team. We were also able to purchase over 50 Chromebooks, a 3D printer, a laser cutter, and so much more. This is all possible because people saw a need and responded.
On a side note--I learned a few things about robotics tonight as I watched a few demonstrations. That is quite exciting.
I am grateful to Jill's family for being present for this evening's ceremony and blessing. I am also grateful to all of the generous donors and supporters who made this possible. God continues to bless our school in an abundance of ways.
